Questions and Answers: Digital Lenses

Q: What are Digital Lenses?
Digital lenses are digitally enhanced eyeglass lenses that provide a dramatic increase in clarity over traditionally made lenses. The clarity is then increased when the digital lens is paired with an anti-reflective coating.
Q: How do they help my vision better than regular eyeglasses / lenses?
Digital lenses provide sharper image quality, better peripheral vision and improved contrast sensitivity.
Q: Is there a difference between digital lenses and free-form lenses?
Digital lenses, high definition lenses and free-form lenses are all descriptions of lenses that use the digital process.
Q: What's a brief description of how your Digital Lenses are made?
Traditional lenses are surfaced on 1 side and patient’s best vision is in the center of the lens. Digital lenses are surfaced on both sides and often called free-form because the lens is customized to the patient’s prescription in a very precise manner. In fact, free-form technology can surface lenses in power increments of 0.01 diopter (D), compared with 0.125 to 0.25 D increments of conventional eyeglass lens tooling.
Q: Do they make them for anyone? (Bifocal, trifocal, progressive, etc.)
Digital lenses are made for single vision, lined bifocals and progressive lenses. All prescriptions can benefit from digital lenses. Patients with higher prescriptions and all progressive lens wearers will notice the greatest difference.
